Great stay, we booked two double rooms and both were very clean and nicely decorated, as was our shared bathroom, the tunnock tea cakes on the beds were a lovely touch! The price was very reasonable and the self check in was brilliant in these covid times, will definitely stay again!

I didn't stay there because I received a message that my booking had not gone through so I booked and stayed at Motel One Edinburgh Royal which would have been a much better experience as it turned out. I never received an answer to my query so am surprised that you think that I stayed at this place.

We arrived in the evening, and when the door was locked, we found we had been emailed a code to get into the main door and room door. We never found staff on site, so were relieved to know we could get in. The location is perfect, however if you are looking for fancy or cozy, this isn't it. We were always on the go so only used the room to sleep in. You must share the toilet and shower with all the guest rooms that are on your floor, however it was clean and updated.
